I just want to point out two things:
One: There will be a Japan Fair at UCR, held two days, on the weekend in April... hopefully... the day is not determined. But please come! It would be a cultural fair... somewhat con styled... There will be vendors, and possibly a few Guests of Honor. Japanese food, and such will be there as well as a ton of other stuff.
Two: I'm not going to Ani-Magic this year, so please do not expect me to drive to AM.
Lewis Black: "There is no such thing as bad language. I don't believe that anymore. It's ridiculous. They call it a debasing of the language. No! We are adults. These are the words we use... to express: frustration, rage, and anger... in order that we don't pick up a tire and beat the s**t out of someone."
